Article

Alejandro García Caturla was a prominent figure in the twentieth century art music of Cuba, and leading exponent of the Afrocubanismo movement. He helped define a period in symphonic production, synthesizing African and Iberian-derived elements with novel manipulations of rhythmic and native instruments in a modern harmonic vocabulary. His assassination in 1940 tragically ended his short but prolific career.
